Drifters Cove is a well-received cottage in Great Yarmouth, praised for its cleanliness, welcoming touches, and suitability for dogs with an enclosed garden. Guests appreciate the thoughtful welcome hampers and the property's quiet location, making it a comfortable base for exploring the area. Some minor issues with parking and maintenance are noted, but overall, guests are keen to return.

Guests that stayed at this property said

The property is consistently described as clean, with one isolated report of kitchen items needing additional cleaning. Overall, the high level of cleanliness contributes positively to the guests' experiences.

The cottage is in a quiet residential area, close to the town centre and beach, ideal for dog walks and accessing local amenities. The location is generally appreciated, although there is a minor issue with parking confusion.

Guests find the beds comfortable and the house cosy, contributing to a restful stay. There is a single mention of a gentle shower, but overall, the comfort level is high.

The property is well-equipped, but there are comments about dated kitchen facilities, a small decking repair needed, and a front door lock issue. These points suggest room for improvement in facilities and maintenance.

The welcome hampers and bathroom goodies are frequently mentioned and highly valued by guests. While these gestures are greatly appreciated, it's important to note that such personal touches, although common, are not guaranteed for every stay.

About this property

Resting on the outskirts of Caister-On-Sea, a coastal village in Norfolk is Drifters Cove, a well-positioned, two-bedroom dwelling. Just a short journey away from a range of local amenities, attractions, the beach, and The Broads National Park, the cottage welcomes four guests and two well-behaved dogs, perfect for a family seascape. Park up in one of two allocated spaces before entering the open-plan living space, where you can rustle up delicious meals, dine as a group, and relax in front of the Smart TV. Head outdoors to take advantage of the enclosed rear garden, featuring a decked area, patio, lawn, and outdoor furniture, where you can dine alfresco or simply watch by as your furry companions stretch their legs. Return indoors to complete your nightly routine in the bathroom, complete with both a bath and a shower, ahead of resting your eyes in either the double or twin rooms. Awaken to a fun-filled itinerary, starting off with a stroll along Caister-On-Sea Beach, leading you towards Great Yarmouth & Caister Golf Club, enjoying far-reaching costal views, and the Great Yarmouth Racecourse, perfect for visiting on race days. Before reaching the centre of Great Yarmouth, stop off at Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens, a firm family favourite, ahead of strolling across the Britannia Pier, touring the Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life, enjoying a day at the beach, or discovering SEA LIFE Great Yarmouth. Complete your getaway in Norwich, bustling with shops, eateries, lofty architecture, and cultural activities, recommended to explore Norwich Cathedral, enjoy a riverside picnic at Whitlingham Country Park, set alongside River Yare, or head to Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery, showcasing a collection of local and fine art. Enjoy your next break by booking Drifters Cove.

Just north of Great Yarmouth on Norfolk's east coast is the seaside community of Caister-on-Sea. Famed as one of the oldest towns in the nation, Caister-on-Sea derives its name from the Anglo-Saxon term "ceaster," which means "Roman fort," in honour of the fort constructed in 200 CE as a base for Roman forces. Caister-on-Sea has a long history that dates back to Roman times. The lovely town now has kilometres of beautiful sandy beaches and is home to neighbourhood bars, stores, restaurants, and takeout that cater to tourists' needs. The Old Hall Hotel's spa provides a touch of luxury to any stay, and the Caister Castle Automobile Collection will satisfy car enthusiasts with its collection of over 200 veteran, vintage, and classic cars and bikes.

    It is close to Caister town centre and also Great Yarmouth Great for dog walks around the beach area Easy to access shopping and restaurants/take aways. Well equipped and hamper left with tea ,coffee and biscuits.

  • Elizabeth

    Clean, cosy & safe garden for our young vizsla. Lovely hamper, a real treat. Decking & front door lock needs some maintenance. Perfect location for us as we have family 3 miles away.

    Everything that you could possibly need was supplied. Very clean, comfortable beds, didn't cook but plenty cooking facilities if needed. In other words PERFECT. Gwen, Bev and Pepsi (the dog)
